More slowmode flexibility

    You should be able to set it to whatever interval you want imo, there is no reason to have predetermined values only.

    @starfield_9 - There may not be many situations where having longer than 2  minute slowmode would be useful, there are a couple scenarios. While I'd image most channels focus on the more live aspect of a flowing conversation, some servers may  setup a channel specific for promotion and may want to limit it to once a day or once a week. For instance my server has a channel to allow people to advertise their clan. We only allow one post every 7 days and ended up using a bot that posts for them using a website we built, however others may not have that knowledge and may use a bot to try and manage that by deleting messages. That still requires a fairly high skill level and frustration on the user end to post only to find it deleted due to lack of education. If a slowmode was built in for that long they would have a system managed timer and easier for servers to setup.

    I can only image a few reasons why discord doesn't allow slowmode to last longer than 2 minutes, and that's either system limitations (performance issues keeping track of that for that long), or just not realizing other use-cases.

    Honestly should be 1-120. what is the point in even typing more than 1 message in 1 second.








  • purpzie

    Definitely support this. Not everyone uses bots or even knows how to invite one to their server, they shouldn't be the relied-upon solution here.

  • Siebe

    Yes, i would love to see this feature in discord. I want 24h slowmode.

  • Stephen
    Why not just add the ability to use a integer, so we can type what we want
  • YuraConst

    A different kind of slowmode is needed - PTM (Pass the Mic) - after a user has sent their message, everyone is muted for a minute then another user is picked to be "passed the mic". The user also has two minutes to send their message in text rooms. In voice rooms, it's plain 1min timer to speak.

    My server has a use case for limiting posts to 1 per 24hours in a buy/sell channel. Would be great to let slow mode police this for us

  • Catt0s

    I think that it might be better to do custom times so we don't need to keep asking.

  • Helper Pupper

    I highly want this. I'd simply like the ability to set cooldown in specific seconds, NOT just intervals of 5 or whatever. 

  • Saeris

    This would be an immense help.

  • almostsuspense
    nice idea
  • jeniouis

    Upping it to 24 hours would be great, but letting it be custom would be even better!

  • Muffins

    Going to jump on the bandwagon and support this great idea.

    (Extra Reasons Why)

    1. Folk games:
     Slowmode is useful for running community based storytelling or folk games. Sure you can have community rules that people opt into, but it's more harmonious to have the system handle this instead.

    2. News/Shout Outs/Voting: People could hypothetically set up channels designed for self promotion, highlights, signal boosting, polling, and realllly long feedback threads. This is basically my first point again, but with different flavors. "The medium is the message."

    3. Weird experimental stuff: Here's the reason I'm here. I set up a channel on my private server today with slowmode set to the maximum as an experiment to see what my community would do with it. Giving access to weird granular options allows people to find weird new magical ways to use it. If it exists, someone will find a way to make it interesting.

    Bonus Ideas:
    A. What if slowmode could be applied on a user to user basis? This may seem punitive, but sometimes people need course adjustment beyond a talking to. Also, for more positive reasons, see points 2 and 3. Also Also, and this may or may not be a good use of dev time, but it's possible that some bots could stand to have slow mode applied to them. This may also cause bot authors to adjust their bot API to adjust for this, and code their bots to condense their messaging. I am not an engineer, so this may be magical thinking on my part, but I'd love it if it was possible.

    B. What if multiple channels could be set to use the same slowmode timer? I feel like some communities may appreciate this. Every discord hits that critical mass where people start turning off notifications. I could see a world where mods may want to link the slowmode of multiple channels together to mitigate notification creep.

    Thanks to anyone that reads this post in full, and cheers!
    Stay safe out there.

    We really need something like this. In our server, we are trying to set 24h rule for an announcement channel.

  • KeRin

    sad to see this idea also went nowhere lol

  • VisualFlips
    The limitation of predefined time doesn't make sense, this suggestion is what Discord should've done in the first place!
  • Burkino

    slowmode per role, sure, this would be nice
    and you can already set a custom time for slowmode (up to 6 hours) by messing with the api a bit. so like i just randomly set it to this for an example

  • Timemaster111
    I think a greater variety of limits and a “only once” would be a really good addition to slow mode
  • turret001

    we have an advertisements channel and we can only limit people to 6h. this feature would allow us to do 24h slowmode which would be very neat 

  • Xerxesz

    Absolutely supporting this idea. We have a channel what is meant to be for in game trades, and reposting the same advertisiements makes it messy not considering, that they are revelant. Seeing the same posts is really unnecessary. 

  • Shadowshnek

    i totaly agree, i'm in a discord for a video games and in a channel for recruit peoples in your guild as there are a lot of peoples on the discord (around 10K) mods said that you can post a recruitement message for a guild only every day, not more for make everyone's guild visible. This is one of the cases that would be useful, when you say :

    "The API (aka discord bots) can currently set slowmode to any integer between (and including) 0 and 120 seconds. I don't see any good reason to use more than two minutes since that is a long time in itself."

    You maybe don't see any utility to the idea of extanding the time but a lot of peoples do.
    Keep hoping it will be extanded 1 day, thanks for reading me.

  • rayzer

    Bump. Slowmode less than 5 secs will prevent from spam but not disturb the conversation. 

  • Nalim

    Would be super helpful for market channels to avoid reposting, definitely a nice thing!

  • 0bscureMystery

    This has to be implemented especially when it comes to bot commands. Sometimes I see people get muted for “spamming” in a bot commands channel, so the admins add a slowmode of 5 seconds to the channel but then that feels too long for the channel. I feel that if there was a 2 second slowmode, that would be incredibly useful for a bot commands channel

    This needs to be implemented yesterday.  Larger discords often need to have limits of a post a day in some channels.  It would be great if we could enforce this.

  • Invisible

    Okay, I think a custom number may not be right all the time due to data range. But you can maybe add more numbers on the slider, i.e. the slider goes from 1 second to 59 seconds and then 1 minute to 59 min and then 1 hour to 6 hours. I don't know you can improvise on this idea. 

    Plus, there are many places where you require a slowmode of more than 2 minutes. The users should be able to set a custom slowmode that will give them more flexibility.

  • MHX

    BTW, while they still haven't implemented this, you can currently do this with moderation bots such as Auttaja. Thank me later!

  • Kalegger

    Maybe 2.7 seconds ?
